There are two different locations for accounts on the site - the one you control on your profile and the one used by the subscription system.

The latter is not published on the site and is used for billing and mailing JFD. You can update it when you subscribe, it will be stored but will not affect the address on your profile.

The location on your profile is limited to city, state and country, and the maps are limited in accuracy so that even if you zoom in your precise location is not shown.

Who sees your profile location is controlled by the Privacy setting on your Contact Info tab:

  • Public = Everyone
  • IFA = IFA members
  • Private = Site Administrator only
